You will be responsible for the Information and Advice team which provides a wide range of support to clients both by telephone and home visits. The organisation holds the Advice Quality Standard for which you will be responsible so experience of managing a quality programme is essential.
You will also be responsible for our Well-being services which mainly comprise befriending in the community and a lunch club.
